Giveaway - Dinner Drama! From This Mama & Barber Foods

It doesn't seem to matter how prepared I am, life happens. I pride myself on cooking from scratch and meal planning, but this past week I was knocked flat by the flu... my little ones were not feeling their best either, and we had a few rough nights where nobody got a good night sleep. My husband farms, so when he comes home at 5:30, he is HUNGRY! I try my best to have him fed as close to him coming home as possible.

My dinner drama came from a rather rotten day. I felt like I was walking in a fog all day through quicksand, not only did I forget to put out anything to thaw, but I had neither the motivation or energy to poke around the pantry for inspiration. I crashed for a very needed nap, and awoke to find it was already 5pm! Oh, no! Thank goodness eggs take no time to scramble... voila! Breakfast was served.

So, have you had your own last minute dinner drama lately? Do you have a go-to food or meal idea?

Have you seen Barber Foods in your grocery store? Their Seasoned Selects are another great way to answer the inevitable, "What's for dinner?" Question.

With a great selection of options, I enjoyed the Seasoned Selects Spinach Florentine.

Straight from frozen to the oven in about 35 minutes, I was a dinner star and I barely had to do anything. To help you out with the rest of the table, check out their list of side dishes and sauces. The site even has suggestion with what to pair with each of their entrees. For the Spinach Florentine? Pair it with Simple & Delicious Angel Hair Pasta or their basic Marinara Sauce recipe.

See? Dinner dilemmas solved.

Would you like to see your own dinner disasters averted? I am happy to say that Barber Foods is going to send one lucky reader a $25 GC so you can stock up on your own Seasoned Selects!
